Static material property tests were conducted on selected rock cores, predominantly sandstone, taken from the MIXED COMPANY Event 3 test site. The results of these tests along with other static and dynamic tests results were used in the development of representative constitutive properties used in preshot ground motion calculations for Event 3. Natural densities ranged from 2.18 to 2.62 gcc, and moisture contents ranged from 0.6 to 6.2 percent. Tensile test results indicate that the horizontal in situ tensile strengths will equal or exceed the vertical strengths.
